SULLIVAN: Guzman hears from Kentucky

The Playaz Club of New Jersey is considered one of the more high profile AAU programs in the country. So it's likely that if Luis Guzman, the 6-2, 170-pound guard from Paramus (NJ) Catholic High School is going to receive some serious looks by high division one programs once the recruiting season begins.

The Playaz Club of New Jersey is considered one of the more high profile AAU programs in the country. So it's likely that if Luis Guzman, the 6-2, 170-pound guard from Paramus (NJ) Catholic High School is going to receive some serious looks by high division one programs once the recruiting season begins.

"I am pretty open," Guzman said. "But right now I am trying to improve my game."

But what part of his game? "Not just one part of my game," Guzman said. "I am always trying to improve all parts of my game."

Last weekend, Guzman helped Jimmy Salmon's Playaz Club of New Jersey defeat the New York Panthers in the title game at the Hoop Group sponsored event in Providence, Rhode Island. Guzman scored 14 points and had nine assists. "I feel comfortable with this team," Guzman said. "There are a lot of good players on the team to pass to."

Guzman can also score. But running the point is his most important skill. Perhaps it might be a skill the Kentucky basketball program is interested in the near future. "I don't have a big list," Guzman said. "But I have heard from Kentucky. I don't know how serious they are."

Guzman is likely to know in the next few months. He also has a big interest in Wake Forest, Rutgers, Florida State, Miami, South Florida, St. Joe's, and DePaul. "I have to look at whatever options I have," Guzman said. "I don't have a leader."

It's too early to really judge what type of interest Kentucky might have with Guzman. But it's likely that Guzman will determine the interest on how he plays this upcoming spring and summer with the Playaz, a team that plays in all of the big events.
